Hi Arthur,

Agreed.  I keep it at around %45.  The circulation of air (and filtering
thereof), as the air through the dehumidifier, probably pulls dust off on
the damp coil...that's speculation, but sounds right at first thought ;-)

I'm curious if you have any references on that.  I've not had any mold
growth, and it seems quite comfortable...and as I said, no camera, equipment
etc. problems at all.  It's been a most palatable environment.  The
dehumidifier is off during winter, probably from October to April.
